Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Experienced deer hunter Walrod delivers a thoughtful, well-written and clearly illustrated look at the full range of do-it-yourself ways that a hunter can utilize a deer after it has been killed. The scope of Walrod's topics, from field dressing and venison preparation to handicrafts and taxidermy, makes this a must-have for hunters. It helps that Walrod's attention to detail is motivated by the philosophic view that if hunters "are able to realize that within us is a responsibility to use a deer to the fullest advantage and value, we will have enhanced not only the worth of a deer, but our own worth as well." This means that along with such helpful tips as proving that "a five-inch blade knife of good cutting steel" is the minimum required for venison butchering and showing the best technique for removing a deer's "guts" as a single package, he also offers tips on how to donate deer to one of several charitable programs, such as Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. A chapter on "Venison and How to Butcher It" breaks down this intricate process into simple steps, using clear and often entertaining descriptions to show how, with a little practice, "you should be able to completely butcher, cut, and wrap a skinned deer within two or three hours." He also offers a number of helpful photos and excellent tips and recipes for cooking venison. (July) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
